Interprovincial Pipe Line Limited, through its wholly owned subsidiary Interprovincial Pipe Line (NW) Ltd. (the Proponent) proposes to construct and operate a pipe line from Norman Wells, Northwest Territories to Zama, Alberta. This pipe line will be used to transport the increased crude oil production resulting from the expansion of the Norman Wells field by Esso Resources Canada Limited, to an existing pipe line system in Alberta. The Proponent filed an Application for an Easement by way of Pipe Line Right-of-Way and Right of Occupancy of other lands as required for the construction of an Oil Pipe Line in the Northwest Territories, with the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development on March 17, 1980. ... On February 1, 1980, DIAND referred the combined oilfield expansion and pipe line project to the Federal Environmental Assessment and Review Office. The Proponent has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement for the pipe line project and in addition with Esso Resources a joint Regional Socio-Economic Impact Assessment (Volume 4). ... (Au)
